, from people like jim demint, from newt gingrich, rick santorum, as if those guys hadn't done enough for the republican party already this year by forcing romney way to the right. but this is a really hard decision politically and practically for republicans to make. first, it's going to cost a lot of money if they go back in. they canceled all the air time. to buy the spots now would cost five or six times more than the money that they already had there in the first place. secondly, it's not politically good for the republican party or for mitt romney or for their senate and house candidates to be associated in any way with this guy. they already have a huge gender gap. look, he didn't drop out. the voters are going to drop him in november, and maybe feehery will tell me he dissents from this, and i'm sure he does, but privately a lot of republicans will say this guy can't win. >> the news here today, you referred to how he referred to this -- this is todd akin -- how he referred to his democratic opponent, the incumbent senator claire mccaskill. let's look at this, what he said tod
with the program. >> let's go to something really big because i like this guy so much. this is jim webb who is retiring as the senator from virginia. he's a democrat but a different kind of democrat. many people, including me, believe he's eviscerated romney with these words he spoke. remember what romney was saying, there's the takers and the makers out there, including among the takers, unfortunately for mr. romney, are those people who served us in uniform, may have been dismembered in some cases, spent the rest of their lives dealing with the injuries and wounds they suffered for the country, and they don't consider themselves takers exactly. let's listen to jim webb defend them. >> governor romney and i are right about the same age, young guys. like millions in the our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the vietnam war. 2.7 million in our age group went to vietnam. those young marines that i led so many years ago have grown older now. they've lived lives of courage, both in combat and after their return where many of them were derided by their own peers for
get away with it with even the -- >> i hope not. i think this is a moment for jim lehrer to be very tough, respectful tough, and for president obama to come back at him and to say, look, i'm happy to see -- your running mate said he didn't have enough time on sunday. that's too bad. that's terrible, in fact. i'm willing to cede, governor romney -- >> could jim lehrer get away with simply saying, i have a little liberty here, a little leeway, i will give you all the time it takes. tell us now what tax breaks you're going to get rid of. >> tell us what tax breaks you're going to get rid of and also please, governor romney, you were very upset about the 47% of americans who pay no taxes. well, they include seniors, the military, and they include the working poor. please tell me, governor romney, exactly which groups you're going to raise federal income taxes on of those three groups because you don't like the fact they're not paying taxes. he's a very wonderful man, a warm man, he could be tough but respectful, and i think president obama should help him out by saying, i'm happy to ced
when he heard one. the first time his debate opponent senator jim buckley called him professor moynihan. he said ah, the mudslinging has begun. >> jim buckley? he's engaging and honest man who hasn't the soggiest notion what the 20th century is all about. >> now, massachusetts voters have to decide who knows what the 21st century is all about. the republican center who thinks there is no difference between justice scalia and justice sotmayor. or the professor. history is on the professor's side. professor moynihan knocked the incumbent out of the senate. running against a harvard professor is harder than scott brown thinks it is. >>> coming up, in tonight's rewrite, the cast of "the west wing" will teach mitt romney how to win the debate. now, the question you have to ask yourself, with 23 hours to go until the debate, how fast a learner is mitt romney? [ male announcer ] the 2013 smart comes with 8 airbags, a crash management system and the world's only tridion safety cell which can withstand over three and a half tons. small in size. big on safety. with the blackish-blue frame and the
'm not worried about gold yet. >> we will say thank you to you. jim tisch. "squawk on the street" starts right now. >>> tonight is the big night. we've got the first of three presidential debates, an estimated 60 million americans are going to watch. will it be the turning point for the tight race for the white house? good morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla along with melissa lee and jim cramer. meanwhile, david is at barefoot. >> reporter: good morning. we're down here at barefoot. >> david, we'll talk to you in a moment. a lot to consider, a lot of data out in the last few moments, including adp, which we will talk about as well. we will see if we add to these gains when we get to manufacturing ism. over in europe, we continue to watch every move out of the prime minister of spain and the first rating agency to take that country's debt to junk status. >> our road map starts with signs of hope in the labor market. days before the september jobs report on friday, could this juice the market ahead of the first presidential debate tonight? >> adp and deutsch deal cr
at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will introduce. and discussing not policing 30-second rebuttals and 60-second statements. none of that red light stuff with the clocks and all of that stuff. and when you're in mitt romney's position, where he's actually trying to hide some things, trying to hide the details of the deduction side of his tax plan, he's still hiding his tax returns. when you're that candidate who has things that you don't want to talk about, those very narrow rules are your friend. the red light is your friend. the very limited 30-second response, 60-second response works well for candidate who trying to dodge and trying to get away from things. president obama, i think is going to have an advantage in the way the non-rules are in this debate tonight. and i also think that mitt romney has come off a series of really easy debates. we have to remember, mitt romney triumphed in a republican presidential field that was the worst republican presidential field in the history of the republican party. those are the debates he won. he was the one on the stage who did not loo
of that on their commodities markets, as well. jim o'neill was in with me this morning again talking about the shift in china from quantity to quality which he thought actually would damage australia more and benefit somewhere like mexico, as well. so he has a trade on of short u.s. dollar, long mexico peso. back to you. >> all right, ross. stay tuned. 6:45. is it five hours -- i don't know. all right. >> half an hour. >> yeah, it's in a half hour. but don't you have to add five hours to that? no? coming up, take's weath etoday' of forecast and our squawk sports report. in person early voting begins today, but you tonight hayou do to prove it's you. who would ask for an i.d.? that's ridiculous. ohio joins 30 other states. and john harwood joins us to talk 308 ticks next. [ male announcer ] for the dreamers... and those well grounded. for what's around this corner... and the next. there's cash flow options from pnc. solutions to help businesses like yours accelerate receivables, manage payments, and help ensure access to credit. because we know how important cash flow is to reaching your goals. pnc bank. for
. but as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta's reporting, romney seems to have some other ideas. jim's joining us right now. what's he saying? what's going on in pennsylvania, jim? >> reporter: wolf, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran follows israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's drawing
's a big one. coming up next, jim vandehei with the top stories from the politico playbook. and eugene robinson, chuck todd, david faber, and calista gingrich joins us onset. but first, bill karins with a check on the forecast. >> getting out the door this morning, umbrellas needed many areas of the east coast. let me take you up the sea board. we are watching rain this morning moving up in south florida. in miami, dry right now, but you will have heavier rain two or three hours from now. tampa, showers trying to move on to the coastline. also the ft. myers area. we have numerous areas of rain in the carolinas, especially the mountainous areas, asheville to greenville. and some heavier rains moving up through eastern north carolina. washington, d.c., right in the middle right to your screen there. so far, you've been pretty dry. you do have rain to your north, though, up through maryland, and further to the north, also, numerous areas of rain from pittsburgh to state college through harrisburg. eventually this will work its way into new york state and new jersey, but not until later to
seconds, buzzer, things like that. it's up to the discretion of the moderator, jim leierer. that's going to be up to him. but there's supposed to be a lot of leeway here over how long the conversations go. the debate is on domestic policy. 90 minutes is supposed to be devoted to the economy specifically with governing and health care. but we'll see if the general nature of those areas allows libya to come up, which we know the romney folks want to do. debates are as much about style as substance and this is a reality show where obama and romney will meet in the first time in nearly five years before their biggest audience of the campaign. the first 2008 presidential debate between the president and john mccain got seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go o
recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> want to bring in our jim accosta, who is covering the romney campaign in wayne, indiana. i'm tired of the false flattery really. do people really buy this? >> reporter: no, i don't think buys it, suzanne, but, you know, campaign aides are going to do that, and th'regoin to keep doing it as long as we have elections in this is country. he compared romney to cy young. they hand it out to the best pitcher in baseball. there's a washington national that might win that this time around. geogonzalez. you know, it's one of those comments where you are sort of like, come on, guys. give me a break. >> really. >> they are going to do that because -- they are going to do it because these debates are so high stakes. i think david georgean tweeted this could be a make or break debate for mitt romney. obviously it's in the romney campaign's interest to lower expectations somewhat. mitt romney wrapped up his event in valley forge, pennsylvania. it's fitting that romney came here. his campaign has sort of been battered and bruised l
. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in deb
couldn't. i looked at jim furyk and watching how many times he backed -- steve stricker towards the end, no, i didn't think about it. and even tiger. probably would have helped if he hit that little four footer so that it was 14-14 at least we wouldn't feel bad. >> yeah, that was quite gray issue gracious. that match probably deserved to be tied. >> and that putt at the end was weak. and he still had the smile on his face, the weird smile. but that was sad. anyway, anything else going on? there really isn't, is there? >> i will give and you quick recap because you were talking about the pmis a little bit earlier out of europe. markets are up. green on the board as you can see. advancers outpacing decliners by more than 8:2. dax up 12. cac up five. despite the fact those pmis came in weak, they were actually a slight tick up. even german ones. the french numbers were slightly weaker, too. spain not up quite so much. we heard from bank company popular, desperately trying it avoid having to take official popular, desperately trying it avoid having to take official aid. stock down 12
day of the fourth quarter. i'm carl quintanilla along with melissa lee, jim cramer, smiling broadly, and david faber. got a big week ahead. a lot of economic data coming on the way. some presidential debates, jobs number. futures are higher despite another china pmi number that came in under 50 this weekend. and as for europe, germany pmi also up. eurozone unemployment remains at record highs. >> ready to walk us through the fourth quarter after a 6% gain for stocks in q3. september ism in less than an hour as well as a speech from ben bernanke. >> two big downgrades on two big companies. microsoft says momentum will slow. >> and facebook's stock is up 30% from the july lows. >>> and julia boorstin with a sitdown with facebook's cheryl sandberg. >>> futures ant rise and the fourth quarter gets under way. major indices coming off a third quarter that was their best quarterly performance in two years. but there's a lot for wall street to digest this week waiting for today's monetary policy speech from bernanke. and the big jobs number is coming up on friday. it's been said that q3 was
responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we heard enthusiasm on the republicans side last year and now it's down to turn out. people are voting right now. today. they're starting to vote tomorrow this ohio. our supporters are camped out at polling places and thousands more democrats voted in iowa last week than republicans. that's the way we've built this organization on the ground for the past 500 days. we're ip venvesting in a ground organization. >> we'll hit pause there, but going to be talking a lot to both of you in the next 30 some odd days and still to come, another campaign issue. taxing marijuana to fund schools. it could move the needle. on this presidential election. that is no joke. plus, violence in afghanistan rising as the war is winding dow
like that tomorrow night. not going to be easy for jim lehrer. even if romney won't answer for them, it needs to be spelled out loud and clear to the american people who have been lied to. mitt romney has not been straight with americans on where he stands and where he wants to take the country and there's no better platform than for the president to take him to the house. how can you expect him to be straight with you as president when he can't even run his own campaign? get your cell phones out. tonight's question, will mitt romney continue his campaign of lies at tomorrow's debate? text a for yes or b or no. you can always go to our blog. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me is robert gibbs, senior obama campaign adviser. great to have you with us tonight. there's so much meat on the bones here. we have laid out all of the distortions and the lies that we have seen from the romney campaign. there's a lot of target-rich environment for president obama. what about this tax plan. is president obama obligated to supporters to point out to them that this is fla
worry. >> senator jim webb, former navy secretary, a vietnam war veteran, spoke with president obama today in virginia beach. and he went right at mr. romney on foreign policy and the wars. and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. romney would do if he became president. mr. romney has said recently and vaguely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timeline for leaving but he has also said he was against a timeline for leaving in the past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten to any competing cogent republican position on the war is probably what we got from senator john mccain at the republican convention when he said that the afghanistan war just shouldn't end. he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm not sure that it's a politically viable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senator. for this year's nominee, it's apparently just not going to happen. not unless he starts it now. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets
was very aggressive at the debate which was quite different than it was when she ran against jim talen. she had a confidence and was much more ladylike in 2006. but in the debate on friday she came on swinging and i think that's because she feels threatened." republicans are trying to ignore akin's latest sexist comment. an rnc spokesperson said "i think it's best if the nrsc weighs in on these questions because we're so focused on the presidential." the nrcc spokesperson said, "decline to comment." it gets worse. according to "the los angeles times" akin told supporters, "the first two minutes, wow, it's like somebody let a wildcat out of the cage. she was just furious and attacking in every different direction which was a little bit of a surprise to us." you know, it's par for the course, from the candidate who said this -- >> it seems to me, first of all, from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> of course, akin tried to apologize and now that republicans are struggling to regain t
-like. >> unbelievable. >> among them newt gingrich, rick santorum, jim demight not, high profile. do you agree that this could have a national trickle-down effect here? >> i think it has a trickle-down effect and it has a trickle-up effect as well. look at mitt romney's polls in ohio he's trailing among women by 25 points. so the overall impression of the republican party as not getting women, as being very unfriendly towards women, as not scientifically understanding women has had a negative impact on the gop. it's unbelievable that in the very week when he finally -- when the deadline passed that he could no longer get out of the race he comes back out with something else to get back in the news. >> incredibly harmful to the gop. todd akin does not rep the republican party. he doesn't speak for mitt romney, but she's right. it's having a trickle-up effect. it's affecting the presidential race, and it's damaging the party's identity. >> he doesn't speak for the gop, but when he talks about the legitimate rape, obviously, most people run from that, rightly so. when he talks about rape in no ca
, they're changing their tune. missouri senator kit bond endorsed him today, jim demint, all endorsing todd akin. and now the nrsc, the national republican senatorial committee is opening the door to spending money there. but the chairman of the nrsc, texas senator john cornyn said yesterday, this, we have no plans to support akin. i just think that this is not a winnable race. so you're getting all these mixed messages from national republicans. are you going to play here, are you not going to play here? i'm watching karl rove, the founder of american crossroads who told me in tampa just a few weeks ago that todd akin was headed for a landslide defeat, one of the biggest defeats in modern senate history if he doesn't pull out of the race. he's only losing by five points. is american crossroads going to come in here and try to pull him over the finish line if it could mean a republican majority in the senate? that's a tough thing to pass up. we're still keeping an eye on this race. we'll see what republicans will do. >> this won't be the first time that missouri has a fascinating race
? that's what we will ask our great friend jim -- director at gtm institutional services. it is funny these economic numbers have turned sour awfully fast. it is interesting. i want to ask is the drop in stocks a bump in the road? >> i think it is more than a bump in the road. i don't think there is huge dark clouds gathering. you and joe and dave talked about how the stock market is one good thing. i don't think agree with that. there is a dark side to the stock market. it masks structural problems them average person out there and i speak of this because we are five weeks from the election is looking at the newspaper and seeing a boring stock market and thinking things must be okay and ignore the other data which is awful. if you have a job right now you see your stocks going up, i don't think you think it is that bad. >> i'd like to say is this good past the start of something new and good but it was a lousy week. i'm obliged to ask is in the start of something bad? is there a serious correction about to develop. >> i think there is a correction. i don't know if it is serious right
-- >> reince priebus drew the line. how is he going to come back. sn. >> jim demint is backing him. there's a substantial section of the party that supports akin. when i was very republican national convention, i saw more than a few todd akin buttons. they're torn in two different directions. on the other hand, there's a lot of voices within the party that want to see them hurting up for his own. >> he's number ten on the list of things that's hurting romney. >> but it does go back to what you say at the start, you have to tie this back to mitt romney, back to women. this is back when people wanted to ban child labor. i don't think there's a woman in america who has looked at the facts that say i want to be free to get less money for the same day's work. >> would president obama's team in a position of strength with all of this happening go down and try to grab missouri. it's not a state he's expected to win, it was a bellwether state in the last election, no question about it. his unwillingness to get behind ad akin, doesn't thank the die naekic -- >> if he's doing well and sfrt conserva
knows quite a lot about mitt romney's debate preparation, his senior advisor, former senator jim tallent. welcome to you. >> good to be with you, piers. >> how is he getting on, the candidate? because this is potentially a make or break debate for mitt romney. >> yeah, it certainly is a big debate and a big debate for the country. well, he's worked hard. the president is a good debater and he's been in this -- on this spotlight before, so you know, governor romney is probably a little bit the underdog but i think he's going to be ready. he's going to be ready on the issues which is really what this election's about. >> there's a massive game at the moment of both sides downplaying expectation. so far, even if mitt romney just makes the stage, you guys could declare a triumph and a glorious victory. it's getting a bit ridiculous. the truth is mitt romney spent most of the first half of this year debating, so he should have the advantage, shouldn't he? >> well, i expect him to do well. i don't think -- what an election's about, what this one's about, piers, we can't go on like this with un
at the debate, which was quite different than when she ran against jim talent. she had a confidence and was much more lady like in 2006. >> boy. >> okay. so let's just stop right there. how do you think that is going to play with the swing voters and women in missouri in 2012? >> of course this makes people think todd akin's earlier dumb comment was no fluke but, joe, the real dilemma for people in washington is do you fund this guy? it is looking like he could still beat claire mccaskill. he is hanging in there in polls. the senate republican campaign committee which had said not another dime to him, and they said that partly to avoid funding their other donors, when the deadline passed for him to drop out and he didn't and was hanging in there in polls they said just this week, we'll monitor that race. national center regimes talked about putting money in there. now he says something like this. but, joe, here's the dilemma for them. he could be 51. he could get them a senate majority. are you going to walk away from that? because the candidate is a laughing stock? that's what they're debating
